Once the old paint is removed, the team can begin to sand back the timber to create a new smooth finish ready to be primed and painted. With the timber exposed, the team can also now repair any rot and damaged areas. With all repair work we use high quality epoxy resins, which once painted look exactly like the timber, creating a good-as-new high quality finish.
This restoration process is also applied to the sash window box that sits within the brickwork, all timber here will be hand sanded, before any rot and damage is repaired, ready to be primed and double coated with paint.
In this situation the client wished to keep the original single pane glass, so all glazing was taped to prevent damage, whilst any putty that had become rotten or had fallen out was replaced. If the current glazing isn’t being removed, all old paint lines will be carefully removed to make way for the new paint and crisp new lines that will be achieved by our expert team.
The team are now able to prime each sash, before applying two coats of paint, the sash’s are then cleaned ready to be installed.
It is at this point that the team installed new sash cords to each window, serviced the pulleys and re-balanced all windows so they were perfectly hung and no longer moved unaided within the box.
